iPod Swimbelts: Pricey, But Ready for Water and Wear

Despite the fact that we've hit winter weather, manufacturers want us to believe waterproof iPod accessories are the new black. A company called Swimbelt has a series of waterproof holsters for iPod video, shuffle and nano, $39.99, that were designed to work while fully submerged in the pool. The belts are made of neoprene that is resistant to the effects of oils, solvents, heat, and water. You have to purchase the H2O Waterproof Case, $79.99, and waterproof headphones, $49.99 separately, which means a waterproof set will put you out nearly $170 on top of the cost of your iPod. I think the price begs the question, is the ability to listen to music underwater worth it?
